my new toy

The other night, while cleaning under a booth at my restaurant night job, I found a tiny lost toy. Not just any toy, mind you, but a bitty crossbow! After many failed attempts to launch toothpicks at my unsuspecting co-workers, I realized there was a hole in one side that had to be plugged for adequate toothpick-launching action. This problem was easily fixed by wadding a small piece of paper into a ball.
Many toothpicks were scattered about as spent ammunition. The kitchen staff was cowering in fear. My boss was left shaking his head and asking if I could find something less likely to send someone to the hospital with an impaled cornea.
More searching revealed that coffee stirrers fit quite nicely.
My co-workers better watch out tonight -.....

Pretty neat! Maybe you could use it to fire paint or to fire paint-covered objects onto a canvas. It would be interesting to see what kind of effects you could get.
